Flower calendarIn the course of the summer, the entire wealth of Swiss Alpine flora, around 690 different species, can be admired in the garden. The weather has a great effect on the period when a plant flowers. This can vary by two to three weeks, particularly in the Alps; the likelihood of catching a specific plant in bloom is greater at the start oft the indicated period than towards the end.
As the last snows melt in the Alpine Garden, the mountain spring begins with masses of soldanella and crocuses, mountain cowslips and trumpet gentians, followed by Alpine anemones and globeflowers.
